GOP lawmaker/ uniited airlines pilot calls for Hillary to be ‘hung on the Mall in Washington, DC’

Friday evening a Republican lawmaker from West Virginia called for former Secretary of State and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to be publicly hung in Washington DC.

According to WOAY, Michael Folk, who serves in the West Virginia House of Delegates when he is not flying airplanes for United Airlines, posted a tweet stating: “@HillaryClinton You should be tried for treason, murder, and crimes against the US Constitution… then hung on the Mall in Washington, DC”

After receiving criticism, Folk posting a second tweet reading, “Sorry, I don’t mince words… read this story & watch this video & maybe you’ll understand” with a link to an article about the failed investigation into Clinton’s email server.

Folk’s tweet was screen-captured by the West Virginia Democratic Party which called Folk “unfit to serve.”

Twitter commenters have also sent screen captures to United Airlines which responded : “We are definitely aware, and are investigating this. Thanks for letting us know.”



A West Virginia lawmaker said Saturday he regrets tweeting that Hillary Clinton should be "hung on the mall in Washington, D.C.," as punishment for her use of a private email server as secretary of state.

But Michael Folk, a member of West Virginia's House of Delegates, said he still believes Clinton should be tried for treason after an FBI investigation determined she handled classified information on the server. The FBI recommended earlier this month that charges not be brought against Clinton or her staffers.
"I do think she should be tried and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law," Folk told CNN Saturday. But as for being hanged, he said, "No, my gosh. That was the hyperbole in the statement."

"The rule of law is gone," Folk told CNN. "The average person that would have done something like that would have been in jail for life."

was anything ever done about threats from GOP lawmakers advocating harm to Obama ? If so, I don't recall hearing about it. This needs to change.

5. Right after Darrel Issa is tried for leaking secrets

Darrell Issa can’t keep a secret
By Jonathan Capehart October 23, 2012

Okay, I think it’s time for someone to oversee the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The dead-tree edition of Dana Milbank’s column on how the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee blew the CIA’s cover in Libya had barely yellowed when chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) released sensitive documents that could endanger the lives of helpful Libyans.

As Foreign Policy reported last Friday, in his committee’s probe of the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi tragedy, Issa dumped 166 pages of “sensitive but unclassified State Department communications related to Libya” on the committee’s Web site. And he did so without bothering to redact identifying information about the Libyans working with the United States. As a journalist, I’m very much in favor of more information. But I also understand the considerable outrage generated by Issa’s actions.

More: https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/post/darrell-issa-cant-keep-a-secret/2012/10/23/701455be-1d11-11e2-b647-bb1668e64058_blog.html


While this is an opinion piece there are links to articles and sources that support the information about Issa and his committee leaking critical, maybe top secret, information.

6. That will be treason and require imprisonment in a few short months.

Bet that smug smile will be off his face then.

The Hillary hate really demonstrates the level of u.s. misogyny. I can say that, not being a great fan of hers, but respecting her career and hard work, with the exception of the iraq vote.

11. Apparently he is not mentally able to understand the facts and the law as presented by Comey.

 

But more obvious is that he is simply a Hillary hater hiding behind the RW demagoguery
